HC Deb 09 May 1876 vol 229 cc264-5

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he has read the proceedings of a large and important meeting recently held at Calcutta, and presided over by the late Viceroy, at which a Resolution was unanimously adopted, that it was most desirable to form an additional Bishopric in Northern India; and, whether the Government will take the opportunity of the See being now vacant to give the subject their favourable consideration?


in reply, said, the meeting alluded to had attracted the attention of the Secretary of State for India, and the Government would be prepared to give their favourable consideration to the division of the present See provided that the funds for the endowment of an additional Bishopric could be furnished from private sources.
